in iraq and afghanistan. what they need to look at specifically is with the promise of doing tax reform in the fall through december what is the guaranteed tax reform gets done and there is new revenue. you eluded to it. republicans say if democrats don't keep up their end of the bargain we get rid of president obama's individual mandate. democrats say we get rid of the bush tax kults 250 or above. they're working on the trigger mechanism. it's going to take many differentists and turns. it's looking like wednesday is the closest thing we've heard all along in this process that a firm deadline needed to work out the compromise. >> luke, some exclosive issues in that mix. this is going to be a really interesting negotiation to follow. >> a long way to go, andrea. there's still a long way to go. next week's the real crunch time. we'll have a fun weekend. >> thank you, luke up up on the hill for us. senator kent conrad chairs the budget committee and is a member of the gang of six and joins me now senator, your colleagues have been exploding over the secrecy of this. you can say nothing is
, they're taking part in afghanistan, they also -- like their scandinavian neighbor denmark -- did have an uproar over the cartoons. but an uproar that i should mention that the norwegian government went out of it way to apologize for. so, basically, it's normally seen as a soft target because it's a peaceful country and considered that. one more thing, rick, you know, it's interesting that the actual nobel prize for peace is given out in oslo, but today it seems very far from that. rick? rick: good observation there. greg burke streaming live for us from europe. thanks very much. jenna: back stateside, it's hot outside. at least 17 states have temperatures above 100 degrees, and more than 20 people have died this this brutal heat wave. utility companies are struggling to keep the juice on in so many places. adam shapiro is in new york city's central park with more. hi, adam. >> reporter: hey, jenna, and it is so hot out here, i'm spritzing the atlantic ocean. i'm going to tell you not only how you can save money, but how you can make money, have the utility company pay you in a heat wa
in afghanistan or iraq or perhaps the publications of some of these cartoons of the profit mohammed. >> we'll stay in touch with you. thanks very much for helping us. >> thanks a lot. >> obama spoke out about the attacks in norway from the white house not that long ago and he condemned the violence. >> we want to prevent this kind of terror from occurring. we have cooperated with both intelligence and in terms of prevention of these kinds of horrible attacks. >> what's going on? >> so far no official request from norway for help, but a top counterterrorism official says you should expect to see both countries, they have a very close relationship. expect to see them share everything they can on intelligence. where might the norwegians start to look for clues? it whether start right on the streets of oslo. they will look at those buildings with or without u.s. help. they will look at the destruction. was that reinforced steel? was it reinforced concrete? how wide a area? that will help them calculate the size of the bomb, the power of the bomb. and they will get into bomb forensics, if you w
in the united states with a young man who went across to afghanistan. he had no muslim background whatsoever, but he went to wage jihad. it's not unknown for europeans to become enamored of this international jihadist project. >> let me just ask a really simple question. why norway? why norway? and why can't we conclusively say yes, this is al qaeda or yes, these are international terrorists. >> we can't see inconclusively that it's al qaeda. it's so soon. there's one somewhat plausibility group to have responsibility that comes from a group in iraq that was connected to the stockholm suicide bomber in in 2010. it's plausible without being plausible. he posted a photograph of a young man literally hours after the stockholm attack before anyone in the world knew who carried that attack out. so he did know. so that's a plausible claim. why norway? 5 million people, norwegian newspapers have repeatedly published the mohammed cartoons. there was a plot last year that was wrapped up in norway where at least one of the defendants has admitted they were going to go after one of the norwegian newspa
norway would be targeting for supporting the u.s. war in afghanistan. after a norwegian newspaper reprinted cartoons of the prophet mohammed in 2006, once again al qaeda called for revenge. then last july, three alleged al qaeda operatives were arrested inside norway for plotting to hit targets there. but i have to say, there have been no claims of responsibility u.s. officials say right now there's no solid evidence this is al qaeda. there's a wide field of suspects including political radicals. >> schieffer: okay. well, thank you very much, bob. bob orr in washington. well, yes, it is july, and it's supposed to be hot in july. but it's hard to remember it being this hot. today the east coast got a full dose of the heat wave that's blamed for 34 deaths nationwide. in new york and atlantic city, the temperature actually hit 104. baltimore and washington saw 105. and it felt a lot hotter. here's jim axelrod. >> reporter: in the last week, 1,472 temperature records have been set or tied across the country. newark, new jersey, hit 108 degrees, the highest temperature ever recorded th
in iraq, afghanistan, and elsewhere. what we need to do is have a growth agenda. we need to reprioritize. so instead of subsidizing off-shore jobs, we are subsidizing the growth of manufacturing here in the united states. let me make my second point. this is what the is about. republicans put a bill on the floor that they call cut, cap, and balance. i called it cut, cap, balance, wink, and nod. it absolutely wasn't real. if you just lost your job, because it was out sourced. if you are the c.e.o., you made the million dollars, you get a $100,000 check in the mail tax cut. how is that fair? backbone of the american economy. and the bill on the floor was a kick to the stomach. we need solutions defend middle class than those who provide tax holes for the middle class. host: i want to ask about yesterday what was provided for the public? guest: if you were an auto broker, yeah, it was a good deal. but going into that deal, most was recouped. at the end of the process, yes, over $1 billion, if you are an auto worker, and you are checked your job, and we have a job analysis in the united stat
in afghanistan. likely in the hands of those trying to kill our troops. that is according to a new audit. the u.s. agencies limited oversight on the cash that enters the afghan economy, leaving it open to fraud, or diversion to the insurgency. late this afternoon, the senate unanimously passed a bill to extend the term of f.b.i. director robert mueller by two years. number of republicans originally voiced concerns, but by this morning, kentucky senator rand paul was the lone hold-out. after meeting with mueller, paul was satisfied. the president must formally send up the nomination. fear of pirates is having a big impact on the world economy. we will explain. but first, early look at president obama's re-election effort. @@ this just in. friday, the pentagon will appeal the controversial "don't ask, don't tell" policy that has kept gays from openly serving in the military. according to the law, a 60-day waiting period goes in effect for the policy is officially implemented. other words, in two months. >>> the federal election committee says john edwards should repay $2.3 million to the federal
plate. he's managing three wars and conflicts in iraq, afghanistan, and libbia. he, of course, has the debt ceiling on going on capitol hill, which apparently is not going on. and he comes here to the university of maryland to talk to college students and constituents. and as a result, he held a town hall meeting here to meet with his voters. ladies and gentlemen, the president of the united states. >> reporter: mr. obama received a warm welcome and acknowledged that even the president is affected by the heat. >> i see some smart folks up there wore shorts. my team said i should not wear shorts. my legs are not good must enough to wear shorts. [ laughter ] >> reporter: but then as he talked about the looming financial crisis in the country. >> first thing i wake up thinking about in the morning and last thing i think about when i go to bed at night. and i won't be satisfied until every american who wants to find a job can find one and until workers are getting paychecks that are actually paying the bills. >> reporter: then came the question of jobs. strengthening neighborhoods to t
have to think of terrorism. norway has been an active member of the coalition in afghanistan and they are an active member of nato, i should say, and they have been active in the current conflict in libya. an interesting subnote on the possible al qaeda link, they have, since 2005, offered asylum to a former leader of an al qaeda group based in northern iraq and they are now trying to deport him and have been trying to deport him and he just in the past few weeks has been threatening damage, threatening violence against the government there. the word from the prime minister, by the way, is that "we will not cave in," but a final note, not to draw this further than we can say, but what was done, what was achieved, is death of adults, maybe adults involved in the government, in that city. detects of, perhaps, the children of the officials of the government on the island. we are still learning more. >> thank you, greg, thank you very much. investigators in southern california waiting for test results in the mysterious deaths of a farm suit executive six-year-old son and 32-year-
here. >> thank you. >>> up next, how can an al qaeda terrorist in afghanistan, a triple agent, if you will, manage to infiltrate the cia and kill seven operatives? we're going to talk to the author of a hit new book that takes us inside the 2009 attack. that's next, and this is "hardball" only on msnbc. >>> the u.s. government's remaining shares in the company meaning the government's $12.5 billion bailout ended up costing taxpayers $1.3 billion. >>> we'll be right back. 8gg@รบ >>> welcome back to "hardball." it's been more than two months since u.s. special forces shot and killed osama bin laden. in the wake of that success, it's easy to forget the long, hard road to get there. back in debt of 2009, the cia thought he had the ultimate double agent who would lead them to the top echelon of al qaeda but turn out to be a triple agent, buried so deeply into the cia when he detonated the bomb he was wearing he killed seven cia agents as well as himself. "washington post" national correspondent jody warrick writes an that and how the cia was duped in his new book calmed "the triple threat:
in the operations in afghanistan or iraq. there doesn't appear to be a particular reason for why that nation should be targeted. >> well, norway does have special forces operating around kabul, has had for a long time, and has declined to remove them. and inspite of, you know, multiple warnings from zawahiri and others, and if you look at the internet buzz on the gjihad websites that is why norway would be attacked, and another possibility is that there was a norwegian magazine a few years ago that republished the danish cartoons that muslims found offensive, and that was mentioned today, even though the norwegian government apologized for that publication. there was a thwarted attack last year that al qaeda central was believed to be responsible for. so it is not as if this is something that has been pristine in terms of threats. this is the country that has seen a number of threats, and i think that also having president obama make that statement publicly today indicates that the u.s. government at least believes if not confirms that this is a gee hjihadi attack an qaeda central attack. >> thank
, singled norway out. it's in afghanistan, it's part of nato. it republished the images of the prophet mohammed, which originally were published in a danish newspaper some years back. so many years why a group like al qaeda and other jihadist groups may want to come after a country like norway, brooke. >> i don't know if you were able to hear nima, but she was describing to me that some eyewitnesss there on the streets described a mangled car, perhaps the bomb, perhaps a car bomb. she also said perhaps it was inside the lobby of the building that housed the prime minister. as we said, he wasn't there at the time. this kind of thing would never happen on 10 downing street, but it's happening here in oslo. what do you make of the level of sophistication of the bomb? >> i think we're talking about a relatively high level of sophistication here. the carnage recalls the theme in 1998 of the u.s. african embassies that were targeted by al qaeda. this was a huge bomb that was exploded today. it seems to have killed, unfortunately, significant amount of people. also, coordinated attacks it see
of reasons, also troops in afghanistan, have worked with the united states on some things overseas. when we see the bomb, we don't know much about it yet, but maybe you know more from your sources. when you see the devastation, it's not a small bomb, because damage is high up, and the police say undetonated explosives were found on the island where the horrific shooting happens with the children at the labor camp. when you see that, the sophistication, the power of the bomb, what does it tell you? >> it suggests this more than the work of a single individual. remember we saw the times square bomber. one guy trying to accumulate the materials and detonate it at the time of his choosing, it's hard to do. it suggests there's more than a single individual. the other thing is there was a norwegian journalist media report suggesting that the guy, the individual they have in custody, was a farmer who might have had access to the sort of fertilizer that was anothused te the oklahoma city bomb. as we learn more facts, we'll understand better the motivation, but people now i think in the terrorism co
of nato. we have forces in international military operations. >> woodruff: afghanistan. >> libya. >> libya, and we are also doing peace facilitation which can make us a target. we have been on sri lanka. we have been in haiti, sudan, lots of places talking to people, which don't necessarily share our views on that. >> woodruff: as you look at these pictures of your home country, what comes to your mind. >> i'm saddened to see the report. you just had here. i live 10 minutes walking distance from the prime minister's office and this is a lively part of oslo and knowing that norway has been attacked by somebody, it's hard to understand, all my friends in norway are still in shock. there will be some hard days to come. and we are not sure how to deal with this at the moment. and there are so many unanswered questions. why did they do this? was he alone. is it part of an international terror organization which the police say is probably not. but how can people go to bed tonight. >> woodruff: well, that's a very good question. how can people go to bed tonight. ahnders tvegard here in washington

in both afghanistan and in libya. now, martha, you know, how quickly we forget the train bombings in madrid, the bus and the metro bombings in london. but if you're living in europe, you just get the feeling today like here we go again. martha? martha: here we go again. greg, thank you very much. we'll get more on that from greg burke, also ambassador john bolton is enroute to our washington bureau. we expect to have him with us live moments from now and his take on that. that'll be about five minutes from now, so stay tuned for that. >>> in the meantime, we have got this extreme weather going on in the united states. an epic heat wave that is baking a huge portion of this country. in fact, roughly half of all americans are coping with temperatures that are in the near triple digits right now. record breaking tops reported in the kansas -- temperatures reported in kansas all the way across to new york city. and it is not just unpleasant, it is dangerous in many places. at least 22 people have died related to this heat, and can there are new warnings that that number could be risin
. norway has troops in afghanistan. they support the operations in libya. both of those are lightning rods. and perhaps even more to the point, last year, a norwegian paper reprinted those danish cartoons that caused such a firestorm in 2005. >> that's right. we know you'll be following this story extensively for us. thank you for joining us. >>> now gleets back to lara at the park. >> it's hot here in central park. 27 million people think this first one is pretty insane. it is a video that has gone viral. it's shot in broom, australia. two small dogs are using their -- well, their herding skills to try to gather a group of sharks. that wasn't insane enough. one dog decides he's going to take it to the next level and bite one of the sharks. the dog was fine. the shark swam away, intact, perhaps his ego a little bruised. but everybody is good on that one. >>> next up, i love the story of a baby giraffe giving us all hope. that is her name. she is living in the topeka zoo and proving that these boots are made for walking. she was born with her feet on backwards. front to back, so with the he
they're dodging bullets in places like afghanistan. we'd have confidence. but instead he says he can't guarantee. mr. speaker, we know he can. we know he can guarantee. we should push that on him out of this house to let him know where we stand, so the american people understand there is a moral standard here. one is, tell the truth. the second moral standard is, pay our military, the other moral standard is guarantee the full faith and credit of the united states government. i laid out the rest of these priorities, mr. speaker and cut, cap, and balance is an important position to stand on. the leverage that's here now must be used or we shirk our responsibility. had the leverage been stronger back in 1995, that extra vote in the senate that i spoke about some minutes ago would have been there, i believe and i believe the balanced budget amendment would have been sent to the states and i believe the states would have ratified it and if that had been part of the constitution the kay i came -- the day i came here in january of 2003 i wouldn't have had to walk around on the floor and fi
currently we have soldiers fighting in afghanistan and people don't seem to forget that. i would not say any prime minister is not fighting for the right people. continues to fight for the right people. >> how would any of those prime ministers ask as editor or chief executive how often or would they ever ask you not to publish a story? would they ask you to spike a story? would that happen? >> i can't remember an occasion of prime minister asked that. >> politicians generally do that? >> no. i can remember many occasions when a cabinet minister or politician or prime minister was very unhappy with stories we were running and -- not that they would ask us not to. >> if they had you would have been interested anyway? >> if the story was true and accurate, no reason for a prime minister -- that is why we have a free press. >> final question. still a feeling that in some way you had a close relationship with the prime minister. the allegation seems to be is no different -- the benefit of what people need to see. you have a close relationship with the prime minister. that was helpful to him and
we've been showing you in afghanistan where they routinely have temperatures like this this time of year but take a look at basra today. 114 in the shade. and while we're wearing t-shirts and shorts, they are in full battle gear. meanwhile, let's take a look. some viewers have weighed in on how they keep cool. katie says she chills with the penguins at the newport kentucky aquarium. how do they let her in there? this is how the beck family stays cool in virginia beach, a little ice cream in the pool. and the cool thing about that is you don't have to worry about the drips. >> that looks good. all right, meanwhile, brian is outside. let's go see what he's cooking up. >> cooking. >> i don't know if you heard, alisyn, what i'm cooking up is michael frantti and spearhead is here. does that please anybody in the audience? that's it. michael, welcome to the show. you're one of these musicians wide awake at this hour in the morning. great to see you. congratulations on selling out, this last hit that you had out "the sound of sunshine" has sold, what, two million copies. >> yes. actua
